Marjorie Wellman, '32 


Thou hast not tall or stately spires 

Ascending toward the skies; 

No sculptor's work of art is here, 

Or round about thee lies. 

Yet Wakefield High, thou art to us 

A great and sacred shrine; 

We'll keep within our memories 

These dear old walls of thine. 

We know not what the future holds 

Of gladness, wealth, or pain; 

But wisdom learned within thy halls 

With us long will remain. 

The friendships of these happy years 

We'll keep where'er we go; 

And always praise thee, School of Ours- 

Thv vision made us grow. 


We'll honor thee as on we go 
Through paths that lie ahead ; 
And by our loyal, upright lives 
Thy faithful teachings spread. 
In foreign lands — on distant seas- 
We may our fortunes try; 
It matters not where'er we roam. 
We'll love thee, Wakefield High. 



Marjorie hails from the wooded section called 
Greenwood. Robin Hood enjoyed bows and arrows; 
Marjorie enjoys shooting with a disarming smile. Are 
there not members of the faculty who are grateful for 
it, Marjorie? She is going to pursue her artistic abil- 
ities in future years at Massachusetts Normal Art. 


Maybelle Anderson is one of the best-natured, and 
most popular girls in our class of '32. She is one of 
our prominent musicians. Nobody can "tickle the 
keys" like "Bo". We fear the orchestra would be lost 
without her. We expect you to be as successful in 
your career at B. U. as in W. H. S. Maybelle says, 
"There are drums in my heart"! 


Ruth has been an active participant in sports 
throughout her four years in high school. She has 
been active in hockey, basketball, track, baseball, ten- 
nis, and bowling. Ruth was a winner in the Senior

ing at the Lincoln School and is planning to enter the 
Old Colony Trust Secretarial School. 


"Bill" Atwell, the son of our Superintendent of 
Schools, came to the High School from the Warren 
School. For the first two years we didn't hear much 
from "Bill." but during the last two years he has made 
up for lost time. He has been a member of the foot- 
ball, the basketball, and the track teams, besides being 
an active member of the Hi-V Club. In the battalion 
he has reached the office of captain. 1 le also has 
won a place on the rifle team for four years. "Bill" is 
undecided as to what he will do in the future.

Club in her Freshman year. She was also active in 
her divisional English (dubs for three years. Remem- 
ber that a smile will carry you a long way in office 
work, "Ellie." 

Vera's rather quiet, but have you ever heard 

play the piano? You ought to! 

She played at 

lenry's Wedding*' and in several orchestras this year. 
She also was a member of her Freshman hockey team. 
Vera has taken a very active part in English clubs, 
serving as treasurer and vice-president. She entered

"Bill" came way from Rhode Island to enjoy the 
facilities of Wakefield Migh School. One of our most 
popular boys, he is president of the Senior Class and 
vice-president of the 1 Ii-Y Club. "Bill" has always 
been an example of school spirit. I Ie led the cheer- 
ing during the football season and is a captain this 
year in the battalion. "Bill" is a good sport and 
well-liked by both students and teachers. 


"Zipper" is, as we all know, a friend to everyone, 
lie came from Wickford. Rhode Island, and joined 
our Freshman class. "Zipper" likes sports. He has 
played varsity football for the last three years, and in 
the gym we find him on the first team of basketball. 
He is planning to go to college. We all hope that he 
makes good, not only in his sports, but in his studies.

ber of the football squad during his second and third 
years. In his Senior year he was appointed football

.May your future be like your music without any

"Mim" has been our champion cello player from 
Greenwood. However, she has been rather bashful 
in showing her talent to us. She has been a member 
of the Inter Nos (dub for four years. In her Junior 
year, she was on the Booster Staff. This year she has 
been on the Reception and Year Book Committees. 
Get "Mim" to tell you about the lime she sat down on 
her cello and all but ruined it. As to the future. 
"Mim" is in doubt whether or not to attend art school. 
Here's a chance to express your views, "Mim." 


Stephen Brenan, whose friends know him as 
"Etienne." attended the Lincoln School before begin- 
ning his high school career. He was a member of the 
high school battalion during his first two years and also 
played in the high school orchestra. Stephen was ap- 
pointed a member of the 1932 Reception Committee. 
I le plans to enter Boston College in the Pall. 


What "Milly" lacks in stature is offset by her con- 
genial nature. She personifies boundless energy, ver- 
satility, and almost perpetual motion. Her support 
in the various activities in which she is engaged is al- 
ways whole-hearted. As a member of the Junior 
Prom Committee, the Inter Nos Club, and the English 
Club, she has proved her executive ability. 

John B. Buckle, popularly nicknamed "Ben," first 
learned to read and write at the Warren School. Since 
his entrance into our glorious Alma Mater, "Ben" has 
created an enviable record. I le has been an important 
member of the football and track teams for the past 
three years. Moreover, he has participated in the 
activities of the Hi-Y Club, and during his Senior year 
was president of that organization. "Ben" played a 
leading part in the successful Senior Play. "Ben" 
plans to enter Springfield College after he is graduated 
from the Wakefield High School. We know that you 
will continue your good work, laddie!

enter Boston College next year. It is seldom that you 
s. j e "Brud" when he hasn't a broad grin on his face. 
Among the sports he has participated in are track, 
soccer, and interclass basketball. He has been a mem- 
ber of the R. O. T. C. and the Senior Class History 


Elizabeth Ann Callbeck, known to many as "Beth," 
came to Wakefield High School from the Greenwood 
Grammar School and intends to further her education 
at a business college. During her four years with us, 
she has participated in many activities, the most im- 
portant of which are the Masque Club, the Inter Nos 
Club, and the Senior Play. Be as loyal to your busi- 
ness as you have been to your friends, "Beth", and 
success will follow vou always. 


Muriel formerly attended the Lincoln School. She 
has been treasurer of the Ancient I listory Club and a 
member of the Inter Nos Club. Muriel is ambitious 
and courageous too — we know, don't we. Muriel? 
Last summer she successfully completed a course in 
Latin at the Harvard Summer School. She has no 
definitely decided plans lor the future, although she 
has been considering Smith College.

went to the Warren School. In high school she has 
belonged to the Inter Nos (dub for lour years and has 
been active in her English (dubs the last three years. 
In her Senior year, she was an usher at the Senior Play 
and served on the Class Prophecy Committee. 
"Libby" plans to further her education, but is unde- 
cided as to what college she will attend.

Lett\ r Christie, appropriately nicknamed "Dolly". 
has been one of the silent members of our class, but 
we've found out that after she is graduated she expects 
to work. We wish you all the luck in the world in 
securing a position, "Dolly." 


In the four years that "Babe" has been in high 
school, she has been a member of the basketball squad, 
the hockey and the tennis teams. In her Freshman 
year she was a representative in the Student Council; 
in her Senior year she was a member of the Senior Par- 
ts- Committee. She has made many friends because 
of her jovial, happy-go-lucky disposition. 


Dorothy Clark, alias "Dot", is a well-known girl.

Nos Club member for three years; she was an active 
member of her English Clubs. In her Senior year, 
she served on the Class Prophecy Committee. Doro- 
thy intends to go to Abbot Academy and then to 
Welleslev College. 


Joyce is one of those persons you can't help liking. 
That sunny disposition and smile came with her from 
the Warren School, and she hasn't lost either since. 
She was in the Inter Nos Club for three years, was 
vice-president of the Glee Club, and joined the Masque 
Club in l c )28. Here's to you, Joyce! May you be 
successful at Miss Wheelock's Kindeigarten School 
next vear.

Eleanor Collins is a "brick." She favors everyone 
with her happy grin and usually has a "life saver" for 
any hungry friend. "Nola" has played on the hockey 
team and has been a member of the Glee Club and the 
Inter Nos Club. She has become interested in leather 
work, lately, and plans to attend the School of Handi- 
crafts in Cambridge. Here's good luck to a good 
sport — "Nola" Collins! 


John Confalone, one of the honor students of our 
Senior Class, came from the Woodville Grammar 
School. This year he was the treasurer of the "Elite 
Club," a Senior English Club. John, a member of 
the Junior Prom Committee, was partly responsible 
for the success of this event. Besides being a perfect 
gentleman, John is very popular with his classmates. 
He hopes to attend The Bentley School of Accounting 
to become a C. P. A. Congratulations, John. 


"Cookie" came to our Alma Mater from the 
Lincoln Grammar School. I le has been proficient in 
the art of woodwork, and he hopes to continue his 
good work at Wentworth next Fall. No doubt his 
steady perseverence will carry him to the peak of suc- 


"lladdi" is a good sort of happy-go-lucky student, 
with a pleasing personality and a cheerful disposition. 
Catherine has a great weakness for music. If she can 
hum her way through life as she did through school, 
she will soon be silting on top of the world. 

Page Twelve 


Sensible, humorous, and well-liked is James Cotter. 
A graduate of the Lincoln School, "Jim" is of the opin- 
ion that success is reached only by constant struggle. 
Toward "Jim" the fair sex invariably shows its weak- 
ness, but manfully, he remains at a distance. Best 
of luck at Wentworth, "Jim"! 


"Mini" is a fairly new member of our class, having 
come from St. Martins, New Brunswick, two years ago. 
Though very quiet ami reserved, she has a likable 
personality and is a true friend. This year she has 
been a member of the Class Prophecy Committee and 
the "Elite" Club. Next year will find her enrolled 
in Eisher Business College, where we know she will 
have an enviable record. 


The Warren School claims "Sam" Crosby, popular, 
good-natured, and unexcelled in the art of gastronomy. 
I lis good sportsmanship is shown by his well-known 
success on the football team. Although "Sam" was 
not a star in his studies, his jolly manner got him 
"by." Coing to Massachusetts Nautical School, 
"Sam" is assured of an adventurous future and, no 
doubt, he will make an ardent globe-trotter. 


"Bob" is one of the most popular fellows in school. 
I !e makes friends easily, and everyone likes him. We 
wonder why he goes home at all, because he takes part 
in so many sports. He was chosen as a member of 
the all-scholastic football team for two years. "Bob" 
undoubtedly will be one of the outstanding players on 
the Holy Cross College gridiron in years to come. 

Page Thirteen 


"Dot" is a very conscientious girl and a hard worker. 
Whatever she attempts, she always accomplishes. 
"Dot" has always been an outstanding member of 
English clubs. She is still undecided about her future. 


"El" was graduated from the Hurd School. Her 
heaven on earth is either the gym or the sports' field. 
She was captain of her Sophomore baseball team and 
the Senior basketball team. She's out for every sport 
going, including tennis, hockey, and track. New I lamp- 
shire University has her application for next year. 
Everyone who knows her agrees she's a peach of a girl. 


"Mike" has been a great help to his class by serving 
on the Banquet, Prophecy and Year Book committees 
this year. During his four years, he has been in the 
orchestra, the band, the Glee (dub, and the Ili-Y Club. 
By being on the honor roll, he has proved that he will 
very likely succeed in becoming the "business man" 
he wishes to be. 


The Lafayette School sent "Edie" to us four years 
ago. Since then she has distinguished herself by her 
cheerfulness ami ready smile. Always willing to work, 
she has been an active member of the Inter Nos (dub. 
"Edie" doesn't know just what she will do in the 
fut Lire, but we know she will find man)' friends where- 
ever she goes.

During his wars in Wakefield High School. "Stan" 
has led a rather remarkable existence. I lis peak of 
success was reached when he triumphed over many elo- 
quent opponents in the Senior Prize Speaking Contest. 
During his Senior year, he was captain of the prize 
winning company, D. "Stan" is going to a military 
academy and eventually will offer his services to Uncle 


"Mamie" is a living example of "never trouble 
trouble till trouble troubles you." Quiet? Yes, but 
this is not the whole story. She is another one of 
those deceiving women. From a clue here and there, 
we find she's a loyal friend to have. We have every 
reason to believe that we'll be proud of "Mamie", for 
she's ambitious and earnest. 


"Dave" has been an ardent and successful ath- 
lete, but he excels in track. His specialty is the 
mile, but he proved his ability as a long distance run- 
ner by winning first place at the Harvard Inter- 
scholastic Cross-country Meet last fall over a field of 
one hundred eighty. "Dave" is, above all, a good 
sportsman and will be most valuable to Yale. lie 
displayed his dramatic ability when he played the mas- 
culine lead in the Senior Play, and when he won a 
prize in the Senior Prize Speaking Contest. 

A quiet and good-natured fellow, "Nugget' 

came to 

Wakefield Nigh after having attended the Warren 
School. lie is now preparing to enter Boston College. 
Edward has been very active in athletic squads, among 
which are baseball, football, and track. "Nugget" 
was also a member of the Class Will Committee. 
Here's hoping you make good in your college career, 
Edward ! 

Page fifteen 


"Jo" Dinan entered the High School from 
the Warren School. As a Freshman, he was a 
member of the high school battalion and the Ancient 
History Club. During his first three years, "Jo" par- 
ticipated in track and inter-class basketball. In his 
Senior year he won a first prize in the Senior Prize 
Speaking Contest. He intends to enter college in the 
fall. Here's hoping you make good, "Jo"! 


Ruth Dodge, known to us as "Dodgie", entered our 
class from the Greenwood Grammar School. "Dodgie" 
has taken part in the activities of the Debating Club, 
the English program committee, field hockey, and 
bowling. Your plans for the future are still dim, but 
may success be yours in whatever profession you 
choose, "Dodgie." 


"Dot" also adds her name to the list of "tiny tots." 
Being small did not stop her from taking pari in sev- 
eral sports. Her winning smile has carried her through 
school, and we are sure it will help her in her business 


Although "Don's" spare moments have been occu- 
pied with frequent "moose" calls, his most important 
activity is track. During his Sophomore year he went 
out for interclass track, and during the last two years 
he has been doing excellent work as a sprinter. The 
future holds great things for steady pluggers like 

Page Sixteen 


"Dot" Eastman has been active in many of the 
clubs here at school and was appointed a member of 
the Class Gift Committee. Cheer up, "Dot," they 
don't have history at Burdett College. 


"Taxie's" small stature doesn't keep him from hold- 
ing his own in various activities. He was an active 
member of both the rifle team and the tennis team. 
His ability in oral work was a pleasant surprise to 
most of us when he ably rendered a selection in the 
Senior Prize Speaking Contest. This quality was also 
brought out when he played in the Hi-Y play, 
"Tweedles." Here's luck to "Taxie" at Browne and 
Nichols Preparatory School. 


"Dotty" is always willing to do her part. She gave 
a good account of herself in a recent debate in room 
301. Whatever you decide to do, "Dotty", we know 
you will make good.

Beware of a "Cyclone" that shoots! Tom was on 
the rifle team for three years. He attended the oldest 
school in town for four years, but that does not mean 
that Tom is a "back number." Undoubtedly he will 
be a success at the technical school which he plans to 

Page Seventeen 


One of the best-known of the class of '32 is Wilhelm 
Eiikson, popularly called "Eric." Baseball and the 
Glee Club have claimed most of his time since he came 
to W. H. S., but it is rumored that he has caused many 
feminine hearts to flutter. Success comes to the per- 
severing, "Hric"! 


Warren Farwell, nicknamed "Mosey" by his friend- 
ly enemies, came to Wakefield High from Montrose. 
He has belonged to the Glee Club for four years, tak- 
ing part in the concerts and operetta. He is seldom 
without his harmonica, which he plays surprisingly

on the honor roll frequently. During his Sophomore

was also a member of the interclass championship 
basketball team in his Junior year. At present, he 
plans to enter Tufts College. His many friends know 
that his future will be successful. 


"ki" is a popular member of her class. In her 
Junior year she was treasurer of the class, secretary of 
her English club, and a member of the Junior Prom 
Committee. She has also been active on the hockey 
and the baseball teams. We think your vacation last 
summer was too much for you, "Ki," because you 
haven't been out for sports this year. 

Page Eighteen 


"Finnan" is another one of our red-heads, but did 
you ever see her without "Haddi"? She is well- 
known in all the Girls' Athletic circles, though she was 
rather shy at first. "Finnan" is known for playing 
the game straight. We know you'll be a success in 
the business world with that motto. Good work, 


"Miggie" came from the Warren School. President 
of the Inter Nos Club and a member of various ath- 
letic teams, she has been an active and popular mem- 
ber of our class for four years. Her laugh is said to 
give many young swains a case of "Fitz." If she is 
as successful at Wellesley College as she has been here, 
her future will be a happy one. Later, "Miggie" hopes 
to enter John Hopkins University to obtain an M. D. 


Ernest is one of those strong men in the uniform the 
girls admire. Though he is quiet, he is always a 
pleasant companion and a cheerful friend. He has 
been active in the battalion throughout his four years 
of high school, and this year he attained the rank of 
First Lieutenant. So you're going to New Hampton 
Preparatory School and Harvard, Ernest — look out for 
the women with that uniform! 


Alison, alias "Al," has taken part in a number of 
activities relating mostly to the Hi-Y Club. He be- 
came a member last year and was elected treasurer this 
year. Alison has always been a bright scholar since 
his training in Greenwood Grammar School. "Al" 
seems to be a quiet but very likable chap. 

Page Nineteen 


Mary Downing Foster is a well-liked girl around 
school. She came from the llurd Grammar School. 
In her Freshman year she starred in hockey, basket- 
ball, track, and tennis. She has been very popular in 
the art division during her four years. Mary plans 
to enter prep school in the Fall, and then to attend 
The Vesper George School of Art. 


Quiet and unassuming, Rena has a smile which most 
folks find entrancing. She received her early training 
(in smiling?) at the Montrose School. At present she is 
still undecided as to her future plans. Perhaps we 
could help you select a profession, Rena. We aim to 


Brown-eyed "Janet" came to us from the Warren 
and Lafayette schools. She participated in basketball 
and track during her four years. "Janet" was exceed- 
ingly devoted to "football", although she was only an 
interested spectator. She is a very active Senior and 
deserves her well-merited popularity. "Janet" plans 
to go to college in the fall. Congratulations, lassie! 


"Dot" Gates came from the Greenwood Grammar 
School and has been popular during her four years at 
Wakefield High. She has been an Inter Nos (dub 
girl all four years and a prominent member of her 
Junior and Senior English (dubs. "Dot" plans to go 
to Lasell Seminary and then to Simmons College.

The doings of "Rudy" Gerry and his Sad Syncopa- 
tors have become a by word at W. H. S. this year. 
"Rudy" leads the orchestra and imitates the latest 
crooners on the slightest provocation. He was in the 
Senior Play cast this year and in the Junior Prom 
entertainment last year. "Rudy" is good-natured 
and well-liked by all his classmates. 


"Lill" has been one of the most popular girls of the 
class. She was a faithful member of the Inter Nos, 
English, and Girls' Glee (dubs. During her Sopho- 
more year, she was elected secretary of the Masque 
(dub'. The next year "Lill" was elected secretary of 
the Junior class. She has decided to attend Marycliff 


"Thelmie" entered the High School from the Green- 
wood Grammar School. She served three years as a 
member of the office corps and at the information desk.

During her four 

Eleanor brought her ability in 
studies from the Warren School, 
years at W. H. S., she has been an active member and 
officer of the Inter Nos Club and a guard on the bas- 
ketball team. Last fall, she was a member of the 
Senior Play cast. Eleanor won the distinction of be- 
ing Salutatorian of our class. In September, she is 
going to Bates College. 

Page Twenty-one 


"Bill" was a member of the R. 0. T. C. in his Fresh- 
man and Sophomore years. He also played on the 
inter-class baseball team. If you see "Bill" driving 
one of "Charlie" Doyle's trucks, don't think that he 
is skipping school, for "Bill" is only earning money in 
his spare time. He is planning to attend Northeast- 
ern University. 


Mary, a graduate of the Franklin School, has been 
a popular and very successful student. She has been 
a member of the Inter Nos Club, the Year Book staff, 
the Reception Committee, and the girls' tennis team, 
as well as being an honor student during her four 
years. We are all proud to greet her as the valedic- 
torian of our class. Mary is worthy of the honor 
bestowed upon her. Both quality and quantity are 
outstanding attributes of her character. She will un- 
doubtedly be seen on the campus of Radcliffe College 
next fall. 


If a person were to meet "Sis" for the first time, he 
would receive the impression that she is a quiet girl. 
That opinion soon disappears as one becomes better 
acquainted with her. It will then be found that she 
is a jovial and a loyal companion. 


"Ruthie" is our sporting member. She has been the 
captain of the girls' basketball team and has also been 
seen on the hockey field. Whether dashing over grass 
will help her in future years, we do not know. She has 
proved herself capable in her school activities and 
various entertainment committees, and we feel sure 
that she will reach the top of the ladder. Inter Nos 
Club, Glee Club, and English Club are a few of her 
many activities. 

Page Twenty-two 


Mary is known throughout the school as a class 
cut-up. She came from the Hurd School and has been 
very popular during her four years in high school. 
She has been an Inter Nos Club girl for all four years. 
During her Senior year, she had a humorous part in 
the Senior play and also served on the Class Gift Com- 
mittee. She is preparing to enter Vesper George 
School of Art next fall. 


"Joe" has been one of the leading violinists of the 
Wakefield High School. I le has been a member of 
the orchestra for four years. During his Freshman 
and Sophomore years, he was a member of the rifle 
team. He has decided to attend a medical school. 
When "Joe" comes around with his black bag and little 
pink pills, it will be difficult to think of him as a doc- 


Rose, a pretty and conscientious girl, is a faithful 
student of the commercial course. For three years 
she has been an active member of her English Clubs. 
Her business efficiency will be a help in her future 



"Art" is a jolly good fellow with a great sense of 
humor. He was a member of the R. O. T. C for two 
years, and, during his second year, he was promoted to 
the rank of sergeant. He was also a member of the 
football squad for two years. 

Page Twenty-three 


"Iggy" is well known not only in Wakefield but in 
"South Boston." She was on the girls' baseball team 
for two years and on the Senior Dance Committee, 
taking part in the entertainment. We hear she has a 
passion for a gigilo, or is it "Gigi"? 


Believe it or not, the dignified, smartly dressed 
"Kay" comes from Lynnfield! Her charming per- 
sonality adds grace to any gathering. She has been 
a willing worker on the Junior Prom Committee and in 
the Inter Nos Club. We hear that her future is un- 
decided, but we know it will be successful, even though 
it is only working among pots and "Pans."

ladies from South Lynnfield, expects to attend Burdett 
College. She has been a member of the Girls' Glee 
Club and the Inter Nos Club for two years. We call 
her "Eddie." 


Vivacious, blithesome, and gay, Ann Hennessey, 
nicknamed "Yid", is one of the most popular students 
in Wakefield High School. Ann, a graduate of the 
Montrose Grammar School, has led a rather glamorous 
career since her entrance into our Alma Mater. Al- 
though she has not been noticeably active on commit- 
tees and teams, her conquests among the male student 
body are recommendations enough to those who are 
not included among her few confidants. Remember, 
Ann, all nurses are heartbreakers!

furnish you with a nice Remington. Good luck to 
you at Chandler's Secretarial School.

Greenwood. She was a member of the English (dubs 
during her Sophomore and Junior years. "Dot" is 
undecided about her future work.

tional musical ability. I le was made major after two

Virginia Lee, better known as "Ginny", came from 
the Greenwood Grammar School. Of course we can't

the dog.'' "Ginny" has been very popular during her

and corresponding secretary of that club in her Senior 
year. She starred in basketball her Sophomore year.

"Mac" was a new addition to our class last year. 
She has been a member of the Inter Nos and English 
clubs, and this year she revealed great ability as an 
actress in the lli-Y — Inter Nos club play. She 
was also on the class history committee. Well, "Mac", 
there is one consolation, if the girl back home gets 
Dwight, you can be his private secretary. 


"May" is one of our tall blondes hailing from the 
Lincoln School. Her willingness to help and her 
ready smile have made her a favorite in our class. We 
look to see you as one of our most eminent singers in

ing to high school. She plans to be a nurse and seems

Greenwood, has helped advance the team to the promi- 
nent position that it holds today. 1 le has also played 
on our hockey and baseball teams. In his Junior 
year he was vice-president of our class. "Mugsie's" 
only regret is that he had to study in order to play on 
the teams. At the University of Pittsburg, where 
Frank is planning to go, we know that the football 
team will soon be at the top. Be good, "Mugsie." 


The nickname "Ricky" makes one think of someone 
unstable, infirm, or unsteady. Not so Richard, he is 
as steady and dependable as a granite post. I le re- 
ceived his training at the Hamilton and Warren 
Schools but, as yet, has no plans for the future, which 
condition is a precarious one for a methodical young 
man to be in. "Ricky" was active in interclass bas- 
ketball for three years, and this year he was on the 
hockey team. 


Edwina F. Neal entered the Wakefield High School, 
having graduated from the Greenwood Grammar

Franklin School gave us that active little girl called 
"El". She was on the Board of Directors of the Inter 
Nos Club and a member of the Masque Club. The 
1930-31 basketball games interested "El" immensely — 
we wonder why? She's enrolled at B. U. for next 
year. Here's wishing you loads of luck in anything 
you attempt, "El". 


"OKey" came to high school from the Greenwood 
Grammar School. In '28 and '29 he played football, 
and in his Sophomore year he went out for baseball. 
Since he can't tear himself away from "dear ol' high," 
he plans to return next year. He may seem quiet at 
first, but on longer acquaintance we find a "corking" 
good fellow. 


"Jimmie" came to our renowned Alma Mater from 
the Hamilton Grammar School. During his Freshman 
year, he played football and took a part in the Masque 
Club play. "Jimmie" has also been interested in 
several other activities: track, the Senior Play, 
and the Senior Party. On the '31 football team, 
"Jimmie" made a fine showing and won much deserved 
recognition. With the students, he has been exceed- 
ingly popular. "Jimmie" plans to attend either Holy 
Cross or Exeter after graduating. Success to you,

most popular girls in the Senior class. In her Fresh- 
man year, "Pat" belonged to the Debating Club. She 
starred in basketball in her Freshman year, and in 
her Junior year she played tennis. During her Sopho- 
more year, "Pat" was in the Masque Club play. 
Again, in the Senior Play, she proved herself a suc- 
cessful actress. She served on the Junior Prom Com- 
mittee last year and on the Year Book staff this year. 
"Pat" intends to enter Philadelphia Osteopathic Col- 
lege. Needless to say, she will make a great success of 
her profession.

is planning to enjoy the sea's happiness. He served 
on both the Junior Prom and Senior Party Commit- 
tees. During his Freshman year he was a member of 
the R. O. T. C. I Ie is also an active member of the 
Hi-Y Club. "Tom" wants to become a member of a 
nautical school, and we know that he will reach his 
determined goal. 


"Pan" is one of those likable fellows whose every 
utterance is filled with humor. His ready wit is well 
known to all his classmates. His knowledge of the 
outdoors and his proficiency as a marksman are two 
of his many attainments. 


We have heard it said that good things come in 
small packages. That surely applies to "Eunie" from 
Lynnfield. In W. II. S., she belonged to the Inter 
Nos Club, the Clee (dub, and the Masque (dub. 
Eunice shines in drawing — we should call her "Eunie, 
the girl artist." Next year she is going to "prep" 
school and later to the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. 
Who can tell — some day we may be proud to have 
known the great Eunice. 


"Dot" intends to be a teacher of languages in the 
future. She has been outstanding in athletics, being 
on the basketball team, the track team, the baseball 
team, and the hockey team. In her Junior year she 
was hockey captain. You have our regards, "Dot". 

Page Thirty-four 


"Es" was one of that horde of pupils entering high 
school from the Lafayette School. Her winsome 
smile and sunny cheerfulness have won her a host of 
friends. Willing to work at all times, she has played 
an active part on the Senior Play candy committee, 
the Class Day committee, and in the Inter Nos Club. 
We know you'll have many friends at business school, 


Although "Pete's" most important activities were 
the Glee Club and the Hi-Y Club, we seem to think 
that "Tweedles" did a lot toward his Summit Avenue 
activities — if you catch what we mean. His R. O. T. 
C. work included a commission both as a second lieu- 
tenant and as a captain. His performance in the 
Senior Play showed his dramatic talent. September 
will find him enrolled at Massachusetts State College. 


Alda is a very industrious student. She has been 
a member of her English clubs and also a worker on 
the Motto Committee. During her second and third 
years, she was a member of the Girls' Glee Club. Alda 
plans to enter Salem Normal School next Fall. 


Have you been captured by Florence Pratt's big 
brown eyes? Classmates say she likes to talk, and 
that she and Mr. Dower argue admirably. At any 
rate, we know Florence has an inviting future before

Emma is a loyal supporter of W. II. S. People no- 
tice her for her neatness in dress. She is a born planner 
and arranger; give her a chance to do things and she 
is happy. Emma is interested in two "A's": athletics 
and aviation. We'll fly with you any day, Emma! 


"Bob," the boy with the smile, came to High from 
the Warren School. "Bob" is one of the boys who have 
worked hard to have hockey recognized as a school 
sport. He has guarded the net for three years. An- 
other specialty of "Bob's" is track. On our great '32 
football team, he was one of the "four horsemen." 
"Bob" is planning to go to "prep" and then to M. I. T. 
Good luck, Bob! 


Richard Pyburn, one of the silent boys from Lynn- 
field, is a student in the commercial division. He is 
planning to work after he leaves school, and his suc- 
cess is assured. Why? Boy, he is industrious, and 


Everyone knows "Kitty." We have all seen her 
broad smile. "Kitty" is usually busy, but she is ever 
willing to do her share in the activities about school. 
We are glad to have her, for who could help appreci- 
ating that wining smile. We wish her luck at the 
Chandler Secretarial School.

"Ruby" came to Wakefield High School from the 
Greenwood Grammar School. She has won our sin- 
cere admiration for her work in the art department. 
"Ruby" is also an actress, taking part in the Masque 
Glub play her Sophomore year. If you have ever 
heard her sing, you will agree that she should study 
voice culture. 


"Pug" has been one of the most popular students of 
the class. He was a member of the Student Council 
in his Freshman year and a member of the Hi-Y Club 
the last three years. He proved himself a successful 
actor in the Senior and Hi-Y plays this year, and he 
also served on the Senior Party committee. In addition, 
"Pug" has afforded much amusement in the Sad Syn- 
copators. He plans to go to the Massachusetts School 
of Art in the fall. Well, here's hoping, "Pug"! 


Although "Robby" is fifth in his class, as to academ- 
ic work, he is one of the first in the hearts of his fellow 
classmates. The Hi-Y Club held his attention for 
three years, and the R. O. T. C. presented him a well- 
earned commission after four years. His dramatic 
talent was brought forth in the Senior Play. If his 
scholastic record has anything to do with it, he will be 
doing great things at M. I. T. 


Have you ever heard "Midge" read? Her natural 
reading ability has always been outstanding, even as a 
pupil in the Warren School. She has been an eager 
helper in the Inter Nos Club and on various commit- 
tees. Always a remarkable student, she came fourth 
on the honor roll of her class. We predict success for 
you at Smith College, "Midge." 

Page Thirty-seven 


Grace came to us from Montrose four years ago. 
She is quiet, and unobtrusive, but a willing worker. 
She was a member of the Senior Party Committee this 
year. We envy the husky man who has you for his 
stenographer, "Rusty"! 


Leo Ryan, "Xerxes" to most of his classmates, is 
known and liked by everybody. His specialty is art, 
but he recently showed unexpected dramatic ability by 
starring in "Tweedles", the Hi-Y — Inter Nos play. 
"Xerxes" is going to the Massachusetts Art School, 
and, with his natural ability at drawing, ought to be a 
big success. 


Although he has led a rather retiring school life, 
"Pete" has earned a favorable reputation among his 
intimate classmates. These close confidants have dis- 
covered beneath his silent attitude a strain of splendid 
philosophy. Cheer up, "Pete," Coolidge is a man of 
few words. 


"Dot" is always on the job. We know that Mr. 
Dower can't "stick" her in economics. That's all 
right, "Dot". Don't let them put anything over on 
you, it will count against you in your office work.

"Johnnie Dingbat" went to the Greenwood Gram- 
mar School before he came to the big city to attend 
high school. He went out for baseball and track, but 
it's in the musical world that he excels. He blew his 
horn for three years in the orchestra and for one in the 
band. What would the lunch counter do without 
"Johnnie," and what should we do without that smile? 


"Gertie" seems quiet to students in Wakefield, but 
her Lynnfield acquaintances say she is jolly and full of 
fun. We are sure that "Gertie" will succeed in what- 
ever vocation she may choose. Would that we had 
more like her! 


"Buddy" is one of the prominent members of the 
Class of 1932. For three years he has been a member 
of the Boys' Glee Club, and he is now its able Presi- 
dent. He is also the club's soloist in concerts. In 
addition, he finds time to serve on the Prophecy and 
Banquet Committees. William intends to become a 
music supervisor. Lucky school that wins him! 


Caroline Helen Scott came to us from the Green- 
wood Grammar School. As a Sophomore, she was a 
member of the Glee Club; and as a Junior, she partici- 
pated in the activities of the Inter Nos Club. She

Committee. Caroline is now planning to enter col- 
lege, after which she expects to teach.

"Gussie" Seavey capers down from Greenwood on 
the bus every morning. She has been a member of 
the Inter Nos Club for four years and she has served 
on the Class Day Committee. She plans to attend 
Farmington Normal School and teach the future gen- 
eration. We all wish you luck, "Gussie"! 


Claire likes to be called "Shan," so we'll start right 
in now. She was a member of the Girls' Basketball 
Team in her Freshman year and of the Inter Nos Club 
during her Junior year. "Shan" is a slim, attractive, 
and likable girl. It will be worth the trouble to get 
sick when Claire becomes a nurse.

Lloyd Shea, nicknamed by some, "Lunchhook,"

Civics Club; and in her Sophomore year, she was on 
the Senior Motto Committee and served as a member of 
the Inter Nos Club. Both last year and this, she has 
been a member of her English club. One thing we'd 
like to know, "Sherry," is how you are going to get 
along without "Dot" Doucette to write notes to next 


Ellen Margaret Slattery, a graduate of the Harvard 
Grammar School, Charlestown, has been very active

from that much-abused region, Montrose. Being of 
an open mind, he was in search of enlightenment and 
knowledge. He has been a member of the Year Book 
committee and the Class Day committee. He plans 
to enter Northeastern University. Here's luck to you, 
"Smitty," and may your bridges never tumble down!

She says her nickname is "June." It makes us think 
of "What is so rare as a day in June?" She is a quiet, 
reserved, and studious girl with a smile which is like 
the sunshine. Jennie will have no trouble getting 
alone in business school. 


"Bill"! There's a man for you! In all sports 
"Bill" is there. lie has played baseball for four years, 
football for three years, and has captained the hockey 
team this year. In his Sophomore year, he was Pres- 
ident of the class. Me came from the South Lynn- 
field Grammar School and is planning to go to Gov- 
ernor Dunimer Academy. Take care, "Bill." 


"Betty" came to us from the Boston Intermediate 
School. I let" most prized and envied possession is her 
wealth of lustrous golden hair. "Betty" is a favorite 
among the whole student body, and she owes her social 
success to her happy-go-lucky disposition. "Betty's" 
ambition is to become a trained nurse at the New Eng- 
land Sanitarium. We wish her a successful and happy 


"By" is a quiet, likable chap from Lvnnfield. While 
he has never taken an active part in school athletics, he 
is, nevertheless, well known and liked by his class- 
mates. We're glad to hear that "By" is going to 
Boston College next year.

"Tut" is a chap whom you like as soon as you be- 
come acquainted with him. He played on the hockey 
team this year and performed much to his credit. 
"Tut" is as handy with his pen as he is with a hockey 
slick, and he was chosen for the Booster Staff last 
year. He has been faithful in attendance at Hi-Y 
Here's to "Tut." 


Hailing from the Warren School, "Katie" now grad- 
uates from high school leaving a trail of conquests 
behind her. As an inspired football cheer leader and 
an active member of the Girls' Glee Club, she is always 
a willing worker. Interested in her own class, she 
nevertheless finds time to appreciate certain talents 
among the Juniors. 


"Van" came from the Lincoln School. She has 
made herself one of the prominent pupils of the class 
by her work on the girls' athletic teams. She was a 
member of the Athletic Council for four years. "Van" 
is going to California, the land of eternal sunshine. 


William Walkins, better known as "Weary Willie," 
came to us from the Woodville Grammar School. 
"Willie's" jovial countenance, which has dispelled the 
gloom in many of his classrooms, will be well remem- 
bered, even by those outside his circle of immediate 
friends. As a member of the Prophecy Committee, 
and as a clever writer for the "Booster," he will be re- 
membered by the Class of '32.

"Let" is one of those fellows who believe in the 
saying, "Love 'em and leave 'em." Me sure has 
broken many hearts around this school, but we think 
some one in Greenwood has really captured him for 
good. (Look out. "Let") lie has been a member of 
the Hi-Y Club and has served on the Class Gift 
Committee. Be yourself at Northeastern, "Let"! 


Marjorie said that she was very active in the Law- 
rence High School before she joined us at Wakefield 
I iigh. Do you suppose she meant to insinuate that 
our "High" wasn't worth the trouble? Whatever she 
may have meant, we know that Marjorie is a jolly 
person to be with, and that she may be a great thinker. 
What makes our feet go up when we ascend the stairs, 


Brenda came from the Lincoln School to this place 
of learning. Her erect bearing adds dignity to our 
otherwise prosaic corridors. Brenda was an usher at

"Kid," all hough of a retiring nature, was elected 
vice-president of his class the Senior year and was ap-

to enter M. I. T. George is well liked by everyone 
who knows him and is the kind of fellow who will go 
far. There aren't main' like George.

Jean has a most vivacious personality. Each word 
is emphasized by a gesture, and each motion made 
more emphatic by a verbal sound. Wherever Jean 
lends her presence, life will not be morbid. She proved 
herself to be an actress in the Senior play, an athlete 
on the basketball court, an orator in the Prize Speak- 
ing Contest, and a student by being on the honor roll. 
Next fall will see lean at Smith College. 


"Mitzi" is not the personage whom one sees on the 
cinema screen, but one who wanders from Greenwood, 
the home of Robin Hood, carrying not pot and pans 
but books and a tennis racquet. Maybe it will be 
"Mitzi" and not Helen Wills Moody, who will be the 
tennis queen in the United States in future years. At 
present, she is planning to add her pleasing personality

"Clita" has always taken an interest in whatever 
occurs in school and is always "Johnnie on the Spot" if 
there is anything happening that will benefit her in the 
way of knowledge. She has been a loyal supporter of 
the Inter Nos Club and the Reception Committee. 
We're with you, Clare!

our class. She has participated in baseball, hockey, 
basket ball, and bowling. She was a prominent mem- 
ber of the Inter Nos Club. "Ruthie" was chosen a 
member of the Senior Party Committee. She has de- 
cided to attend Katharine Gibbs Secretarial School.

"Kitty" formerly attended the Hurd School. She 
has won numerals in baseball and tennis. She was a 
member of the Inter Nos Club during her Sophomore 
and Junior years. We all remember "Kitty" for her 
performance in the Senior Play. She plans to at- 
tend Colby College next year. 


Pep — that's "Ginny." Her gay, bantering manner 
has won for her an endless number of swains. "Gin- 
ny" has been a prominent and loyal member of the 
Inter Nos Club. We know that the future holds suc- 
cess for her. 


"Ken" has been one of the most prominent pupils of 
our class, and. during his Junior year, was president of 
our class. lie has been a leading soloist of the Boys' 
Glee Club for four years. This year he was chosen 
manager of the hockey team. Next fall, he will enter 
Boston University. 


George has shown greal ability in acting this year. 
Did you hear him stamp around and fret about his son 
in die Hi-Y— Inter Nos play? lie was a member of 
the battalion for three years, and last year he was on 
the rifle team. II you ever hear any squalls down on 
Grafton street, you will know it's George playing "St. 
Louis Blues" on his clarinet. By the way, George, if 
you are going to be an architect, won't you need an

Wakefield High School. Remember us, "Al", when 
you're a big business man! 


"Bub" is a short, stocky fellow who has a good sense 
of humor. He has made himself known as an athlete 
by earning the pigskin over the line many times in 
the last four years and by playing basketball and base- 
ball. We all expect to see "Bub" one of the star 
players at prep school and at college. 


Wallace Chesley came from the Warren School, but 
he is frequently seen on the north side of town. Maybe 
one of the Junior girls can explain this. "Chisler" 
has been a prominent member of the Senior Class and 
a more prominent recipient of Mr. Kinder's P. M. 
slips. Wallace played baseball his Freshman year, 
and in his second year he was quite a hero in football. 
His Senior year found him a member of the band. He 
also afforded much amusement in the auditorium in 
the role of one of the Sad Syncopators. "Chisler" 
plans to enter New I lampton Preparatory School in 


Jessie hails from Cherryfield Grammar School, 
Maine. For all that she came from Maine, one can 
hardly think of Jessie as a farmerette. In fact, she is 
planning to enter training for a nurse at the Massa- 
chusetts General I Iospital in the fall.

"Sub" Dulong attended the Hurd School before 
coming to high school. Mis high school career has 
been one touchdown after another. He has been a 
football "headliner" ever since his Freshman year, at- 
taining the unusual honor of being captain in both his 
Junior and Senior years. 1 lis athletic prowess was 
not confined to football altogether, as he was a pitcher 
on the baseball team for three years and played basket- 
ball for two. Me is undecided about his future, but 
we feel sure that "Sub" will make a success of what- 
ever he decides to do. 


Lincoln School gave us the boy who walked off with 
the first prize for the best work in woodwork in 1931. 
lie was a member of the 1 li-Y Club and the battalion. 
We expect great things of you, "Eddie" — here's luck! 


Ruth, a graduate of the Lynnfield Center Grammar 
School, has been a member of the Inter Nos Club dur- 
ing her lour years in high school. She served also on 
the Reception Committee, and, during her Sophomore 
year was a member of the Girls' Glee Club. Ruth is 
planning to go to college to take up social welfare 


Mary has red hair— maybe she calls it I itian, do you, 
Mary? You know the characteristics attributed to a 
red-headed person. Mary is an exception. She is a 
friendly girl, with an even temper and pleasant man- 
nerisms. She will be a most pleasant office companion. 


Casimir is an industrious lad. He has not partici- 
pated iii many school activities, but. in spite of this 
fact, he has made a success of his high school career. 
Football is his favorite sport, and for several wears he 
went out for it. Here's luck for you, "Kuk", in your

"Jo" is one of the dignified boys of his class. How- 
ever, he has managed to find time to participate in a 
number of the school activities. For four years he 
has been a member of the high school orchestra and of 
the R. 0. T. C. During his Senior year, he received 
the commission of captain. Joseph intends to enter 

Massachusetts State College. 

We're for you, "Jo"! 


"Neal" is seldom seen on the school grounds after 
school hours, but we feel sure that his time is not 
wasted. We have all heard it said, "Still waters run 
deep." "Neal" is an example of this quotation. Al- 
though he is very quiet, he always has an answer ready 
for any question a teacher may ask him. 


One of the best dressers is "Mig" Murphy. She is 
a loyal friend whose willingness to work makes her 
always welcome. She has been a member of the 
Inter Nos Club and her various English Clubs. 


Catherine is an industrious student of Wakefield 
High. Her constant pleasantness has made many 
friends for her. She is a member of the Commercial 
division. Our best wishes are with you, Catherine. 


"Simp" came to us from the Lynnfield Center Gram-

"Summer Is A-Comin' In," the Senior play of the class of 1932, was 
a great success. Miss A. True Hardy, our coach, surely deserves much 
praise for her splendid work. Both nights the hall was exceptionally well 
filled, and a surprisingly large amount of money was made. 

The play, itself, was light and humorous, and the character parts 
were well portrayed. The efforts of both cast and crew were well spent 
in making the production one of the high lights of the class of 1932.

|OR nine years the W. H. S. Orchestra has been under the splendid 
leadership of Mr. C. Albert Jones, the director of music in the 
schools of Wakefield. Despite the many disadvantages the or- 
chestra has been under this year, Mr. Jones considers it one of the best he 
has ever had. Because of double sessions, the orchestra has met in the 
school library on Tuesdays and Thursdays at five o'clock, and even 
though this difficult time was set for rehearsals, the attendance nearly al- 
ways numbered eighteen or more. 

The orchestra has furnished music for the Senior Play, the assem- 
blies, and has given its splendid annual concert. It also has made a very 
good appearance at the Town Hall in the Washington celebration. 

The orchestra this year comprises the following members: 

Piano: Maybelle Anderson. 

Drums: Raymond Chartier. 

Violins: Thelma Smith, Hazel Smith, Ruth Baum, Nellie Minardi, 
Helen Ayer, Joseph Giunta, Guy Stella, Dorothy Daland, Mary Lan, 
Marjorie Fisher, George Robinson. 

Saxophones: Marjorie Messer, Rhoda Strong. 

Clarinets: George Young, Leon Yeuell, Dudley Holden.

Coys' Glee Club 


N spite of difficulties presented by the double-session plan, the 
Boys' Glee Club has had a most successful season. It appeared 
necessary to limit the membership to the three upper classes, and 

forty boys signed up to form a well balanced club. Rehearsals have been 

held at the Y. M. C. A. 

The club took part in the Christmas and Washington Birthday 
assemblies and also sang at the official Washington Bicentennial Program 
held at the Town Hall on February 11. 

On March 1, a Freshman section was formed for the purpose of inter- 
esting these boys in and training them for the work next year. Fifteen 
boys began weekly rehearsals and made such line progress that they were 
permitted to sing at the spring concert with the older group, thus making 
a chorus of fifty-five voices. 

Concerts have been given at l.ynnfield, Greenwood, and at the Vet- 
erans' Hospital at Bedford. In addition, a joint concert with the band 
and orchestra was given in the high school auditorium. Several social 
evenings have been enjoyed. 

The officers are: President, William Schwarz; Vice-President, Robert 
Parker; Secretary, Raymond Dower; Treasurer, Roland Butters; Direc- 
tor, Arthur A. Fulton; Pianist, bonis Amiro, '23.

Inter Ncs Club 

T the last meeting of the Inter Nos Club in June, 1931, the follow- 
ing officers were elected for the coming year: 

President, Margaret Fitz. Secretary, Eleanor Glover. 

Vice-President, Jean Macdonald. Treasurer, Kathryn Walton. 

Corresponding Secretary, Virginia Lee. 

Executive Board — Seniors: Jean Wheeler, Eleanor Nutt. Juniors: 
Edith Doremus, Hazel Moses. Sophomores: Susan Learoyd, Anne Kim- 

Pianist, Margaret Rogers. 

Librarian, Effie Hoag. 

Due to the over-crowded conditions of the school, the Inter Nos Club 
has held no meetings this year, but every girl in the three upper classes 
has been considered as a member without dues, and the executive board is 
still active. 

During the first week of school, the members of this board acted as 
guides to direct the afternoon pupils. 

The girls of the club provided three full Thanksgiving dinners for the 
Welfare Department of the town. At Christmas time they collected toys 
and clothes for this same department with the Hi-Y Club, and they also 
sponsored the Christmas assembly. 

The members have taken up two collections from the school for the 
benefit of the Caney Creek Community Center in the Kentucky mountain 
legion. The total of these collections was twenty-five dollars and fifty- 
six cents. 

The Inter Nos Club assisted the I li-Y Club in the production of the 
play, Tweedles, for the purpose of raising money for both organizations. 

Though the girls have been handicapped by being unable to hold 
regular meetings, they have done what little they could to help the school 
and to exemplify the true Inter-Nos spirit. The best of success to next 
year's club!

Hi-y CI Lb 

[-Y Club had one of its most successful seasons this year under 
the inspiring leadership of President John Buckle and the assist- 
ing officers. The club is the largest it has ever been; and the 
projects it has undertaken have been more numerous, chiefly because of 
the present economic condition and because of the willingness of the boys. 
At Christmas time, the club borrowed the school truck and spent several 
days going around collecting clothes and toys. Then again, they helped 
the Inter Nos Club buy Christmas dinners. 

This year the boys decided to present a play and make it an annual 
event for the purpose of getting money to carry on their work. The 
play chosen this year was entitled "Tweedles" am! was ably given. Al- 
though they did not make any money, they did, however, succeed in mak- 
ing a hit which will help the next year's club. 

The club's activities have been many. It gave a banquet to the 
basketball squad and presented each one with a gold basketball. The 
annual Ili-Y dance was successfully held. In addition, the club gave 
several other dances just for the members and their friends. A faculty 
night, at which time all the teachers were the guests for dinner and a gen- 
eral get-together, was another prominent event. 

For meetings, the club has been fortunate in getting men who dis- 
played their profession to the boys. Lawyers, ministers, electricians, 
salesmen, ami travelers were among the interesting speakers. 

The officers for next year are: 
President, William Russell.

Senior Girls' Basketball 

ENIOR girls again won the interclass basketball games. The line 
up for this year is as follows: 

Captain Eleanor Daland 
Margaret Fitz 
Ruth L. Griffin 
Madeline 1 1 owe 
Beatrice Packard 
Gertrude Vandenburg 

Alice Clark 
Eleanor Glover 
Charlotte Holt 
Ruth Assenza

The following eight girls deserve much credit for making the team 
four years and maintaining the required credits in their studies: 
Captain Eleanor Daland Alice Clark 

Margaret Fitz Eleanor Glover 

Dorothy Petersen Ruth Assenza 

Gertrude Vandenburg Ruth Whitten 

Because of the double session this year, the girls were unable to par- 
ticipate in outside games. The scores of the interclass games were: 

Seniors 18 — Sophomores 7 
Seniors 10 — Juniors 5 

Alice Clark, Eleanor Glover, Beatrice Packard, and Margaret Fitz 
were the outstanding guards this season. Ruth Whitten and Madeline 
Howe did the work of jumping center, while Ruth Assenza and Charlotte 
Holt carried on the position of side center. The four outstanding for- 
wards were Captain Eleanor Daland, Dorothy Petersen, Ruth L. Griffin, 
and Gertrude Vandenburg.

*T"* IIIS year's W. II. S. basketball team achieved a notable record 
jg despite the handicaps of a late start and a practise hour from 5 to 

sHaffll 7 p. m. It won II of its It scheduled games, opening with a 
successful game with the Y. M. C. A. Crusaders, ami closing with a vic- 
tory over Melrose. The high light of the season was the winning of the 
Middlesex League Championship lor die third year. The cup now comes 
to W. II. S. permanently. 

The team was seldom a very high scoring aggregation, only totalling 
thirty or more points on three occasions. It held its opponents down by 
means of a hardworking defense in which every man figured. Only one 
team, the Alumni, was able to score more than thirty points against it, 
chalking up 35 markers to the High School's 28. Coach Shellenberger 
did a praiseworthy piece of work in turning out a winner on one week's 
practise. I le should have an even better team next year with four letter 
men returning and much good material coming up from the Sophomore 
and Freshman teams. Captain Walter Comee, Daniel Burbine, Lowell 
Field, Marcus Beebe, Zenas Bliss, William Richardson, (diaries Climo, 
David Dellinger and Paul Lazzaro are the boys who received letters this 
\ear; and from these Comee — also next year's captain — Field, Richardson 
and Climo will return lor service next winter. Wakefield also had the 
honor of placing two men on the mythical "All" Middlesex Team: Cap- 
lain Walter Comee at center and Daniel Burbine at a guard position. We 
wish the best of luck to "Walt" and next year's team lor another

HEN the 1932 football season had its call, ii students responded. 
Among these were 10 veterans of last year's team. With the 
veterans and some other excellent material, the coach could see a 
good chance of producing a winning team. 

The season rolled along, and the Wakefield boys found themselves at 
the top of the list, not losing even one game. 

The Arlington game that we were so sure of winning, we lost. Why? 
This still remains a puzzle. Some have said that the boys were over- 
confident; others, that the team was stale. We say that they played a 
great game and need not hang their heads. Every team has its day. 

Then came the Melrose game, which ended in a scoreless lie. Both 
leams played remarkably well, and they fought from the time of the first 
whistle to the end of the game. Wakefield held on their own one yard 
line for four downs to keep .Melrose from scoring. This game, perhaps 
the best of the season, deserves a place in the records. 

Although the first team received all the credit, the second team de- 
served a little. It was the second team that kept the first team in trim. 

On looking ahead, it is said that the team of 1933 will be even better 
than our team. There will be at least four veterans: Captain elect 
Curley, Bliss, Comee and I laladay. 

More power to the team of 1 ( H3 from the team of l l )32!

: Hockey team completed another successful season under Coach 
eavens. The team has already built up a very good reputation 
in its three years of existence. 

At the beginning of the season, "Bill" Sparkes was elected captain and 
"Ken" Worthen manager. Because of the open winter, the team was un- 
able to play as many games as were scheduled. It was victorious over 
St. Mary's High School of Waltham, Essex Aggies, Lynn Classical, and 
Lexington, but was held to a tie by Belmont and Maynard. The only 
teams that were able to defeat it were the powerful ones of the Stoneham, 
Melrose and Medford High Schools. 

Eleven letters were awarded to the following boys who helped to 
make the team a success: Captain "Bill" Sparkes, Manager "Ken" 
Worthen, Captain-elect Mark Newbegin, "Bob" Purdy, Frank Mugford, 
"Bob" Shea, Bert Barry, Albert Bangs, Gordon Tuttle, Richard Muse and 
John Curley. 

Best of luck to the 1933 team and to Captain-elect Mark Newbegin.

Eleanor Glover, '32 

Willa Cather, Interpreter of American Life 

Friends of the Class of 1932: 

It is my pleasure to welcome you to our graduation exercises. We 
are deeply indebted to the citizens of Wakefield for our splendid educa- 
tional facilities. To our parents we are grateful for ever-present aid and 
encouragement. Our teachers deserve our thanks for their patience and 
inspiring example. 

This evening, in accordance with the Washington Bicentennial, each 
speaker has chosen for the theme of his contribution one of Washington's 
beliefs. The subject of my address. Miss Willa Gather, is accorded first 
rank among America's novelists. Her life, as portrayed through her 
books, emphasizes the ideal of truth and beauty, the purport of this quo- 
tation from Washington: "A good moral character is the first essential in 
a man. It is, therefore, highly important to endeavor not only to be 
learned, but to be virtuous." Perhaps Miss Gather's fidelity to ideals is 
best shown in her famous novel, My Antonia, a story of the Western im- 
migrant. Antonia's life, indeed, begins unpromisingly. I Ier childhood 
is full of hardships; she is tricked by a scoundrelly lover. But adver- 
sity cannot dry up the well of her pioneer spirit that is typically Amer- 
ican. She has so deep and true a current of goodness that it removes her 
from the dangers of mediocrity. Goodness in Antonia is so positive a 
thing that it seems to bring vitality to all she touches. As the author ex- 
presses it, "Antonia has the most trusting, responsive eyes in the world; 
love and credulousness seemed to look out of them with open faces." 

Deep within the soul of Antonia is fixed Miss Cather's intense love 
for the prairie, blowing with shaggy red grass the color of wine stains. 
From My Antonia, we get also this picture of Antonia doing a man's work, 
breaking sod with the oxen, growing physically coarser every day: "She 
kept her sleeves rolled up all day, and her arms and throat were burned 
as brown as a sailor's. I ler neck came up strongly out of her shoulders 
like the bole of a tree out of the turf." Of her in later years it was said 
that "she was a rich mine of life, like the founders of early races." Truly, 
Antonia as a character indicates Miss Cather's belief in adherence to vir- 
tue, a sentiment strongly expressed by the Great Father of America. 

Although born in Virginia, Willa Cather grew up among pioneer con- 
ditions in Nebraska, where heroic deeds were still being done. From an 
autobiographical fragment, we learn that in Virginia, where the original 
land grants made in the reigns of George 1 1 and George 1 1 1 had been 
handed down from father to son ever since, life was ordered and settled; 
the people in good families ruled, and the poor mountaineers were ignored. 
Foreigners were scorned unless they were English, or persons of title. 
Imaginative Willa Cather, taken out of this definitely arranged back- 
ground and placed among struggling immigrants from all over the world, 
naturally responded eagerly to the challenging contrasts in her New 
America. Struggle, because it is dramatic, appealed to her more than 
comfort and picturesqueness. No one with a spark of generosity could 

Page Seventy one 

help sympathizing with these peoples who were making a fight to master 
the language, to conquer the soil, to hold their land, and to get along in 
this primitive America. Her first two years on the ranch were probably 
more important to her as a writer than any that came afterward. Every 
story that she has written since then has been the recollection of some 
childhood experience that touched her as a youngster and became embed- 
ded in her moral character. 

It is only natural that with such a setting Willa Cather should write 
of the frontier life and the West. Willa Gather's West! A country 
(.! contrasts: snowed-in winters, "breathless brilliant" summers; plains 
endless, monotonous, with hardly a swell of the ground; monotonous, with 
mile after mile of red grass, sagebrush, cornfields, sand-hills, blazing in 
glittering sunlight, deep-buried under snow, blizzard-swept. 

Miss Gather's latest book. Shadows on the Rock, is an experiment, 
written in an entirely different manner. Nevertheless, she still typifies in 
her life and thought the admirable sentiment of Washington: "A good 
moral character is the first essential in a man. It is, therefore, highly im- 
portant to endeavor not only to be learned, but to be virtuous." She has 
endeavored to express the mood and viewpoint in the title. The emotion 
loused in her by the rock of Quebec, a stronghold on which many strange 
ligures have for a little while cast a shadow in the sun, Willa Gather has 
tried to develop into a prose composition not too conclusive, not too 
definite; a series of pictures remembered rather than experienced; a kind 
o( thinking left over from the past. Intensely conscientious in her view, 
still she is able to interpret die Old World with the eyes of the New. Her 
vision and sympathies are boundless. 

Willa Gather's work is classical. Classical, because its natural roman- 
ticism is checked by realism, and both are made subservient to an ardent 
love of life and truth; classical, because the problems she studies are prob- 
lems of general and permanent interest ; classical, because of a superior 
style— a matchless prose characterized by the aesthetic beauty usually re- 
stricted to poetry. 

Intellectual characters interest .Miss Cather little; she is more fasci- 
nated by the general run of mankind. Two native types, however, have 
especially challenged her imagination. One is the pioneer; one is the 
artist. Willa Gather's early transportation to the West gave to her with- 
out effort on her pari revelation of a landscape's essential beaut\' and an 
understanding of the peculiar imprint on it of human sufferings and toil. 
Hie does not "ovct furnish" or unduly embellish her novels; neither does 
she emphasize the trivial. The absence of cheap or gaudy sensation is 
noticeable. lake every sincere artist, she knows that truth and beauty 
are expressed only with simplicity of language. To be sure, high emotion, 
blows through her chief actors, but like a free and wholesome wind. 
At the same time, she does not let herself fall into vagueness or into glori- 
fication of mere noise and bulk. Taste and intelligence hold her emo- 
tions in hand, and, most important of all, she presents a sincere criticism 
of American life. 

Like our noble Washington, Willa Gather is mistress and pioneer in 
iter field. Not once is she unfaithful to the idealistic precept of Washing- 
ton: "A good moral character is the fust essential in a man." We wel- 
come her work as a relief from the realism of other modern authors, and 
we doubly appreciate her devotion to noble principles. Long live Willa 
Gather, most prominent interpreter of American life.

Honor Essay 


Morris Miller, '32 

Oliver Wendell Holmes, Eminent Jurist 

Among the numerous maxims of Washington is the following: "The 
due administration of justice is the firmest pillar of good government." 
At present, this country is proud to have as one of its citizens a retired 
jurist who has won world-wide recognition; a man who has, for almost 
half a century, abided by Washington's conception of justice. Oliver 
Wendell Holmes's service to his country has been great in quality as well 
as in quantity. 

As an eminent and active leader, Justice Holmes displayed attributes 
similar to those of George Washington. Courage, intellectual acumen, 
and vision characterized his actions. He also was an able soldier. Al- 
though he was fatally wounded three times, he returned after each recovery 
to go onward and help preserve the Union. An impressive example of 
his courage and fair-mindedness came when he was in the Supreme Court. 
He had been previously appointed by Roosevelt and had become a per- 
sonal friend of his. A case arose concerning a northern securities com- 
pany. Roosevelt was prejudiced against the company, but Justice Holmes 
wrote his opinion in favor of the company, stating that the Court was for 
the interpretation of the Constitution and not for the expression of per- 
sonal emotion, social theories, or political parties. Throughout all his 
decisions he maintained this same aloofness from personal feeling and 
stntimentalism that so ably characterized the Father of our Country. His 
vision was never obstructed by picayune policies of man. 

Although Mr. Holmes could have had a life of ease, he chose the 
locky paths to success, and, having achieved success, he still remained at 
his post. Whenever he was asked why he did not retire, he would say, 
"When you have taken over one trench, there is always a new firing line 
beyond." Not until he began to feel his health fail, did he finally leave 
the bench. He disliked publicity and personal emotion so much that on 
his last day in Court, when he was helped with his coat by an attendant, 
he said merely, "1 won't be in tomorrow." Even his fellow-justices were 
rot aware of his resignation. President Hoover said in answer to his 
resignation, "1 know of no American retiring from public service with such 
a sense of affection and devotion from the whole people." 

Page Seventy-three 

Holmes's success may be attributed to the exercise of his personal 
powers. I lis dignity, intellect, and perseverance elevated him from the 
role of a student of law to the highest judicial position in the land. As 
he often has said, he worked until work ceased to be fun. Me was very 
keen about court activity. He did not jump at conclusions in making 
decisions. Guided by his insight and intelligence, he looked behind every 
detail, meditated upon every possible meaning of the diction, finding here 
and there a catch word, and then with Ids brilliant pen, he wrote his 
opinions. Many times in his dissents he advanced new angles on the 
case in question. lie was named "The Great Dissenter," not for the 
number of his dissents — for they were few compared with others — but for 
their brilliancy. 

This great justice had certain beliefs of his own. lie never accepted 
tradition. Law to him was a growing institution which should be ad- 
justed to life and the current conditions. "The Constitution," he said, 
"is an experiment, as all life is an experiment." Like Washington, he had 
no compulsory guide. Of course he respected the Constitution, but he 
expanded it lor the times. lie made law and the Constitution flexible. 
Ids guides were his expansive imagination, his fair-mindedness, his intelli- 
gence, and his sound judgment. I le favored no group especially. "Law," 
he declared, "is the calling of thinkers." Me accepted custom and con- 
vention as law. The past could not shape the future lor him. 

In court he was attentive to the last Me had an indefinable anxiety 
about court procedure. Mis keen wit and hum;)!' still prevailed despite his 
ninety-one years. When cases were tried, he frequently interjected epi- 
grams and side remarks. A typical example of his humor occurred in 
Court when the tall and athletic son of one of die associate justices was 
arguing a case. The Justice himself was a very small man. Holmes, 
after having surveyed the dimensions of the son, pencilled a note along 
the bench which read: "Me is a block of the old chip." 

Never, however, in spite of his humor, his gaiety, and his liberal 
views, diil Holmes, in his official capacity as a representative of the people 
and the country, lose sight of Washington's maxim: "The ^\w administra- 
tion of justice is the firmest pillar of good government." The Constitu- 
tion to him was always the command of a superior. In all his services 
io his country he never attempted to legislate: he only passed judgment. 
To American Youth he will ever be an inspiration maA an example of sin- 
cerity and integrity.

Mary Granese, '32 

Edward MacDowell — Father of American Music 

The observance of the Washington Bicentennial suggests to many of 
us a pertinent question: Why is Washington great? In other words, 
what is there that has kept his memory alive these two hundred years? 
is it his brilliant statesmanship, his career as a general, his attributes as a 
leader, or the fact that he was the first president of the United States? 
After some consideration I decided that all these achievements added to 
the grandeur of his greatness. But later, 1 concluded that thoughts — not 
deeds — make men great. Behind every worthy deed there has been an 

altruistic thought. We are 

fortunate in having manv of Washington' 

ideas still preserved for us as a source of inspiration. In reading some of 
his sayings, I found one that adequately characterizes the famous Ameri- 
can composer, Edward MacDowell. May I quote it for you: "I had 
rather glide gently down the stream of life, leaving it to posterity to think 
and say what they please of me, than by any act of mine to have vanity 
or ostentation imputed to me." Whatever we may say of MacDowell, 
we must accredit him with the first beginnings of an individualistic 
American music. In his modest, unassuming way he deservedly earned 
the title of Father of American Music. 

One of the bulwarks of success is a firm foundation. When Wash- 
ington was launching a new government, he was aware of this fact and 
worked with one purpose in mind: to make the country financially, politi- 
cally, and economically sound. So with MacDowell; his elementary 
technical training, which he then considered drudgery, was to prove one 
of his greatest supports. Early in life he had a desire to improvise, but 
his teachers wisely advised him to leave creative work until later. 

Like most other American musicians, MacDowell studied abroad. Me 
spent the greater part of his time in France and Germany. While in Ger- 
many he studied under Raff, from whom he received much poetic influence. 
Just as the United States in its infancy had to adopt customs and habits 
of foreign nations, so our early composers looked to the various European 
countries as models through which to acquire a general attitude toward 
art. The difficulty, however, for the American composer is to distinguish 
between how much he can assimilate for his own use and how much he 
must restrict in his particular field in order to become master of it. For 
this reason, American music has been criticized as featureless, common- 
place, and wholly devoid of individuality. When one considers that it 
takes centuries of differentiated environment to produce a new art or a 
new language, it is inconceivable that any striking originality should rise 
suddenly in American music. 

MacDowell, however, was the first exception to the general criticism. 
He quickly realized that he was not hampered by any annoying racial and 
national distinctions from which the most intelligent European cannot 
free himself. He saw that he was in the midst of a stream of world in- 
fluences to make himself what he would. As a result of his perception, 
lie did more for American music than any other composer. He was the 
first of the Americans to speak consistently a musical speech that was 

Page Seventy-five 

distinctly his own. The supreme place that he holds today is due to the 
fact that his music, in spite of the pronounced Grieg and Raff elements in 
it, does not sound exactly like that of anyone else. The secret of 
MacDowell's success lay in his willingness to recognize limitations and his 
undivided absorption in his cause. In addition, MacDowell was always 
sincere; he was always himself. There are no features or elements in his 
style that we feel have been borrowed and not assimilated. The composer 
gave his own opinion in one of his lectures: "What we must arrive at is 
the youthful, optimistic vitality and the undaunted tenacity of spirit that 
characterizes the American man. That is what 1 hope to see echoed in 
American music." 

Rollo Walter Brown calls MacDowell "A Listener to the Winds." 
Indeed MacDowell was at his best as a poet of nature. He could express 
the moods of the forest, the fields, and the ocean in a way that made us 
understand his message. He was one of the first composers to find in- 
spiration in the melodies of the North American Indians and to elaborate 
on their songs. It is probable that he would have been foremost in 
developing these folk songs, had it not been for his untimely death. 

The composer's last years were spent in an old deserted farmhouse in 
Peterboro, New Hampshire, where his poetic imagination had full sway. 
It was there that he built his famous "Log Cabin," where he could work in 
the summer time without interruption. Shortly before his death, his pupils 
2nd admirers founded the MacDowell Society. It was first established as 
a memorial to his life. Later, Mrs. .MacDowell deeded to the association 
the Peterboro farm as a colony for creative artists, a natural studio where 
men and women might come, and, under ideal conditions, spend a certain 
number of weeks each summer. The fame of this colony has spread all 
over the world, anil undoubtedly further extensions of the "Log Cabin," 
or, as it has been called, "the MacDowell idea," will be established in 
different parts of the country. Truly, Edward MacDowell was a benefi- 
cent father to struggling artists. 

What Washington has done for his country, MacDowell has done for 
American music: he has lighted the path for others. We know what 
posterity has said ami thought about Washington. We must let time 
elapse, however, before we can know how posterity will judge MacDowell. 
But I feel confident that, although some of his compositions may be for- 
gotten, MacDowell will always be immortal for the inspiration he has 
given to the people of his own land and because of the admirable example 
he has set for potential artists. 


Tonight we have reached the climax of our high-school career. It is 
a happy occasion in that we have successfully completed our course of 
study, and a sad one in that we must say farewell to all that has been dear 
to us in these four years, But lei us not say that all these cherished mem- 
ories are lost to us forever, for they will return again and again in our 
"mind's eve" to delight us. And in the future, as we reflect upon our 
happy years here, we shall see thai our disappointments and obstacles 
have been the means of proving the strength and worth of our personal 
characters. Whatever our plans, we owe it to our parents, who have 
made our high school education possible; to our teachers, who have 
patiently urged us on: to our Principal, who has been a steadfast guide: 
and to other friends who have co-operated with us to make our high-school 
career a success — we owe it to them to uphold the ideal so beautifully ex- 
pressed in our class motto, "Forward ever, Backward never."

Behold in the pages of Who's Who, 

Appearing in 1952, 

The notable deeds of '32! 

These twenty years have flown fast; 

The future has become the past, 

And '32 is famed at last. 

So listen as we read to you 

Of deeds remarkable but true. 

Done by the class of '32. 

*-r* HE first name that I see on the pages of "Who's Who in 1952" is 
£ Ignazio Bonfanti. Why! He is mayor of Wakefield, which 
SMfasJ has at last become a city. To assist him as aldermen are Mary 
MacDougall, Ruth E. Griffin, Catherine Quinn, Charles Butler, and Clare 
White. Lorraine Lynch is Chief of Police; Alison Fossett, Tax Collec- 
tor; and Mary McGrail, Traffic Commissioner. 

Here's someone else prominent in the Class of '32. John Dinan, 
President of the Irish Republic! His impassionate oration, demanding 
"Liberty or death," has resulted in the complete recognition by the entire 
world of Ireland's national independence. 

What's this? I see that James Cotter has become president of the 
First National Stores and is a bitter business rival of Ed Grant, who has 
made the Ames Stores an international chain. 

Speaking of business successes, did you know that Lloyd Shea has 
made quite a name for himself as president of the American Television Co. 
and that Robert Curley is owner of the greatest show on earth, the 
Curley Circus? Alfred Ghibellini and Wilhelm Erikson are known 
as the funniest clowns in existence; and Curley has two remarkable 
midgets in Thomas Egan and Edward Tally. Esther Loughlin is billed 
as the fat lady; and Marjorie Allman. as the lion-tamer. Edith Dean 
and Jeanette Gardner are bare-hack riders; and Beatrice Packard an acro- 
bat. I'd like to see that circus. 

Here's a name that might interest you — Sam Crosby. His business 
lias expanded until he has become president of the National Dairy Asso- 
ciation. At his Lynnfield Dairy he has as farm hands: Carl Olsson, 
Francis Payzant, Peter Sawchuk, and Richard Pyburn, with Caroline 
Haskell, Florence Pratt. Marjorie Wellman, and Edna Hayward as milk- 

Why, here's something about Cornelius Movnihan! lie is editor ol 
the Wakefield Daily Item, which now has a competitor, the Wakefield 
.Morning Glory, with Alice Clark as its first editor. Among the adver- 
tisers in the two papers are the Finn, Gill, and Schefisch Fisheries, with 
Katherine Winkler supervising the Codfish Cake Canning Dept. Huff's 
1 lull'v Pull's are mentioned, with Pose Guttadauro as candy tester; as well 
as the Crisp Crinkley Crackers, with the chief pretzel bender in Donald 
Duley. Apparently our class has gone in heavily for food, for we find 
another successful firm listed here, the Kelloway, kelloway and Kelloway 
Karoway Rookie Ko. 

Page Eighty 

To turn from food to literature. Under Leon Dulong's name it is 
announced that he has won the Pulitzer Prize for the outstanding novel of 
1952. Good for you, Sub! 

Oh, here's an athlete who hasn't turned literary. David Dellinger 
is famed as a second De Mar, having won his eleventh Marathon, closely 
followed by George Tucker, who boasts of nine victories. It looks like 
the pair have had a monopoly on first place in the annual classic during 
the past twenty years. 

Here's another athlete of the class of 1932, Frank Mugford. He's 
become coach of Notre Dame; and his team is about to meet that of 
Harvard, coached by our old friend, William Sparks. That will be a 
game worth seeing! 

What's this? Emanuel D'Ambrosio! He is president of the 
D'Ambrosio Construction Company, specializing in schools and prisons; 
and he has just completed the latest new Wakefield High School, designed 
by the famous architect, George Young. The grounds were landscaped 
by Mary Foster and executed under a sub-contract by the Grady Grading 
Company, owned by William Grady. 

Speaking of the Wakefield High School, perhaps you'd be interested 
to know that Willard Atwell is principal, Jimmie O'Keefe is submaster, 
and Eleanor Nutt is dean. Emma Price is heading the aeronautics de- 
partment, and John Confalone, the commercial department. Jessie Clem 
is teaching manual training; Morris Miller, drawing: and Elizabeth Call- 
beck, history. 

Why here are the Bliss Brothers, Zenas and William! They've just 
erected another unit in their world famous hotel chain. Tom Parsons is 
manager with the following staff: house detective, Carl Johnson; house 
secretary, Edwina Neal ; barber, Joseph Migliore; manicurist, Betty 
Steele; hairdresser, Joyce Clemons; and Warren Cooke, the chef. The 
paintings in the lobby were designed by Miriam Brandt. One of the 
unique features is the television studio with its hostess, Barbara Sheldon. 

The famous Beebe Night Club has become the social center of Wake- 
lield, with Catherine and Claire Shanahan as dual hostesses. Leading 
features are Zeke Shea as gigilo, and the Brown-Eaton dance team. The 
dignified head waiter is Ernest Flannigan: and the music is furnished 
nightly by Rudy Gerry's popular orchestra, composed of John Buckle, 
manager of the drums; George Robinson and Joseph Guinta, scraping the 
violins; John Sawin, with wonderful control over the slide trombone; 
Wallace Chesley, playing the trumpet; Mabel Anderson at the piano; and 
Marjorie Messer still performing on her sax. Robert King's hits from his 
latest popular show are in constant demand. 

Oh, here is Clare White's name. She has made a great success with 
her White's White Laundry, where white clothes are made whiter. And 
that reminds me of another prosperous Wakefield firm, the Kuklinsky Ku- 
kumber Ko., with Margaret Whitehead and Jean Wheeler as outstanding 
saleswomen. Also we have Dorothy Eastman general superintendent of 
the Eastman Kodak Company, with Wesley Mason as head chemist of the 
laboratory. Rena Fuller is manager of the Fuller Brush Company. 

What's this! William Walkins has succeeded in establishing the 
Wakesaw Sanitarium with a staff of leading men and women, such as Leo 

Page Eighty-one 

Ryan, head doctor; Muriel Cameron, head nurse; Letty Christie, Evelyn 
Thistle, Jennie Smith, assistants; and Doris McClintock, dietitian. 

1 see that Katrine Tuttle, who is the chairman of the new Sweetser 
Musical Series, has announced the following program for 1952: — Jan. 6: 
Ruth Boudreau, famous concert pianist; Jan. 26: Eleanor Daland, the 
golden-throated soprano; Feb. 10: Warren Farrell, America's Harmonica 
1 larmonizer. 

Why here's Effie Hoag who has charge of the Beebe Library Building 
in Greenwood, with Margaret Murphy and Dorothy Saunders as assist- 
ants. Charles O'Connell, captain of the Greenwood Police Station, has 
appointed Esther Peterson as policewoman of the new library. 

Kenneth Worthen, I notice, is the owner of the Worthen Golf Course 
in Lynnfield. He has as his pro, Gordon Tuttle; and as caddies: Mar- 
garet Fitz, Eleanor Glover, Madeline 1 1 owe, and Mary Granese. 

Al Smith is still running for the presidency. Oh, that is Alson 
Smith of Wakefield, who is the candidate for the Democrats against Ed- 
ward Dinan, who is a Progressive, 

Here's Purdy's name, founder of the Purdy School of Physical Edu- 
cation. On the faculty we see Eleanor Collins, Priscilla Lamprey, and 
Dorothy Curtis. By the way, Catherine Lawless is the founder of an- 
other school, the Lawless Institute of Law. Mary llurton, Eunice Pelley 
and David MacLeod are among the instructors. 

Bert Barry! Hurrah for Bert, the second Babe Ruth! And say! 
Daniel Burbine, the successor of 1 lenri Diglane, has wrestled the title from 
Lester Welford. 

Turning from sports to society, we find that Margaret Rogers is now 
the wife of the ambassador to the court of St. James. Byron Stokes and 
Dorothy Petersen, as Romeo and Juliet, are just concluding a six months 
run on Broadway. 

Dorothy Clark is carrying on the valuable work of Dorothy Dix in 
giving her splendid advice to the love-lorn, and Richard Muse is follow- 
ing in the footsteps of Walter Winchell in his gossip of Broadway. 

Here's Brenda Wells! She is enjoying her fourth and latest breach 
of promise suit. It grieves us to see .Miss Wells again mistreated by a 
cruel and heartless man. I ler attorney is George Simpson. New York's 
leading heart-break lawyer, and the judge for the case is I lis Honor, 
Stephen Brenan. The jury, a notable one. composed of Mary McMana- 
min, Dorothy Doucette, Mary Sheridan. Helen Kirmes, Ellen Slattery, 
Aha Pinto, Ruth Dodge, Cora Seavy, Virginia Lee, Charlotte Holt. Caro- 
line Scott, and Arthur Hampton, rendered the decision eleven to one 
against Miss Wells. 

The Peterson Perfect Pictures, with Gardner Peterson as president, 
has just released "Beauty and the Beast", starring Gertrude Vandenburg 
and Stanley Dearborn. The villain of this picture is William Schwarz, 
with Mary Griffiths as comedienne. Others prominent in the movie world 
are Mamie DeFelice, the second Dolores Del Rio, and Ruth L. Griffin, the 
Jean Harlow of l c )52. Mario Ferrar is following in the footsteps of John 
Barrymore, and Mary Le Blanc is the present-day Irene Bordoni of movie 
and radio fame. And Elizabeth Chattier is starring in the l.erov 
Kendall's comedies. 

Page Eighty-two 

Paul Lazzaro's expedition has just left for darkest Africa in search 
of the "Lost Chord". Geraldine Lovering has been chosen the photogra- 
pher and Ruth Assenza, Flnah Beyea, Vera Blaisdell, Grace Russell, and 
Catherine Cotter have been allowed to join it. 

What's this? Carrie Findlay is president of Wellesley; Thelma Han- 
light is secretary; and Ann I Iennessey, dean. Others on the faculty are 
Virginia Woodbury, instructor of music; Helen Greany, track coach; and 
Ruth Reams, in charge of public speaking and singing. Verna Jenkins, 
connected with the college, is endeavoring to cross a prune with a lemon. 
Oh yes! And finally, here's Ruth Whitten trying to win the bathing 
beauty contest at Saugus' water front, with George Wengen and Leonard 
Kallenburg also in the race! 

You've heard the deeds of '32, 

Found in the pages of Who's Who, 

Appearing in 1952. 

We hope the future pleases you. 

We've tried to paint it bright but true, 

With scarce a cloud in skies of blue. 

We bid you now a fond adieu, 

And wish a lot of luck to you. 

Goodbye, Godspeed to '32.

History of the Class of 1332 

*T* HE most enjoyable day of our freshman year was the first day, 
Vi September 9, 1928. The upper classmen were not there so we 
SeaJaHy reigned supreme. Those who had come from the Lafayette 
School had some experience in the routine which would be used at the high 
school and were less nervous. But our friends from Greenwood and 
Lynnfield had a more difficult task to face. 

The difficult)', however, was readily overcome by all and, our be- 
wilderment over, we soon became accustomed to our environment. We 
worked in close co-operation with our classmates from Greenwood and 
Lynnfield and our efforts soon bore fruit. 

The freshman class was fortunate in having good athletes. It was 
ably represented in track, basketball, baseball and football. The boys, 
by their hard work and determination to represent their class favorably, 
were molded into fine players and soon won recognition in their respect ive 
teams. We took an important part in the skirmish with the sophomores 
in the inter-class meet, David Dellinger running the mile and the half 
mile, John Dinan the quarter, and Edward Dinar) the relay. 

Girls' teams also made good progress. Jean Wheeler was elected cap- 
tain of the hockey team. Jeannette Gardner and Jean Wheeler were 
chosen as freshman members on the athletic council. 

Numerous division clubs were formed. The class as a whole was 
well represented in the various school clubs. 

Margaret Fitz was chosen to represent the freshman class on the Ex- 
ecutive Board of the Inter Nos Club. Class leaders arose, but the real 
leadership of the class was to be awarded the following year. 

Those who were not athletically inclined as well as those who were. 
made outstanding records in their studies. From a class of 283, 266 came 
out at the end of the year with flying colors, ready to become sophomores. 


Ah, with what relief we threw down our title of freshmen to the in- 
coming class, and arose to accept the honor of being called sophomores. 
We thought our importance equalled that of the seniors; but now that we 
have had that pleasure of superiority, we have discovered that the impor- 
tance of three years ago was merely imaginary. 

The class, as an organized body of pupils, came into being the first 
week in November. We felt very important to have elections of our own. 
Our class officers were: President. William Sparkes; Vice-President, .Mar- 
cus Beebe; Secretary, Eleanor Glover; Treasurer, Margaret lit/. 

The officers were introduced to active duty on March fourth, when we 
held our first class meeting. President Sparkes chose two members from 
each sophomore home room to constitute the color and motto committees 
The members of the color committee were: .Mamie DeFelice, Emma Price, 
Marjorie Messer, Lionel Chaulk, Donald Duley, Casimir Kuklinsky, Rich- 
ard Pyburn. Orchid and silver were the colors chosen. The members 
of the motto committee: Thelma Gill, Effie Hoag, Alda Pinto. Mary Sheri- 
dan, Mario Ferrara, Lewis Millet, Richard Meuse, Guv Pasqualino. The 
motto selected was "Forward ever, backward newer."

Our class was well represented in athletic circles. Leon Dulong, 
Daniel Burbine, James O'Keefe, Frank Mugford, and Robert Curley 
became heroes in our eyes, a position which they have made more secure 
in the last two years by their work on the varsity gridiron. We should 
not forget William Sparkes, Edward Dinan. and Zenas Bliss who followed 
closely behind them. A feather in the caps of the sophomores was the 
fact that Leon Dulong was made captain-elect for the next year's football 

Hockey was revived that winter. Robert Purdy and Robert Shea 
upheld the class reputation by their playing. 

Bert Barry, William Sparkes, Richard Curley, Daniel Burbine, Wes- 
ley Ball, Frank Mugford and Robert Shea became closely affiliated with 
baseball activities. 

The girls proved that they also were of an athletic mind. Each 
sport had a team composed of the members of the sophomore class. The 
captains were: hockey, Dorothy Peterson; baseball, Eleanor Daland; 
basketball and track, Ruth L. Griffin. 

The Masque Club honored us by selecting two of the new members, 
Beatrice Packard and James O'Keefe, to participate in the plays produced 
that season. 

The pleasing voices of William Schwarz, Kenneth Worthen, and Emil 
Apenes were heard frequently in the Boys' Glee Club. 

Margaret Fitz was elected treasurer of the Inter Nos Club and man- 
aged the finances of the club in an able manner. 

In spite of the fact that we had found our sophomore year very in- 
teresting we were happy, when June came, to discard the title of sopho- 
more and to be jolly juniors. 


Vacation passed very quickly, too quickly for some. One week after 
Labor Day we all trooped back to school gay, tanned, and ready for work. 
The class numbered exactly one hundred and ninety-nine. The first day 
Coach Healey started football with Leon Dulong as captain. In a few 
weeks regular games began, and although they did not always turn out 
in our favor, a number of juniors made the first team. Those who 
received letters were Leon Dulong, Edward Dinan, Robert Curley, James 
O'Keefe, Daniel Burbine, Willard Atwell, William Sparkes, Zenas Bliss, 
ignazio Bonfanti, Samuel Crosby, Paul Lazzaro, Frank Mugford, and 
Guy Pasqualino. George Tucker was the outstanding track star. 

The girls were busy each afternoon playing field-hockey. The junior 
team, led by Dorothy Peterson, came through with flying colors. 

Early in October the following class officers were elected: President, 
Kenneth Worthen; Vice-President, Frank Mugford; Secretary, Lillian 
Gill; Treasurer, Carrie Findlay. Then came the Junior Prom — the finest 
Prom ever. The gym was decorated with the class colors, orchid and 
silver; and McPartland's Orchestra kept everybody gay until 12 o'clock. 
During intermission some of the school's best dancers bowed low to the 
tune of the Minuet. 

Everybody, boys and girls, had a chance to play basketball when 
winter came. The girls' junior team placed second, while the boys' junior 
team won the cup. On the varsity squad Daniel Burbine was the only 
junior to get a letter. Marcus Beebe and Zenas Bliss received numerals. 

Page Eighty-five 

The following members of our class were elected to office in the Inter 
Nos Club: Vice-President, Margaret Fitz; Treasurer, Eleanor Foster; 
Board of Directors, Margaret Rogers and Jean Wheeler. 

The senior staff of the Booster was replaced by the junior staff the 
last of March. Morris .Miller was elected editor-in-chief with sub-editors 
Miriam Brandt, James Cotter. Doris McClintock, Sally Parker, Robert 
Purely, Gordon Tuttle, William Walkins, Ruth Whitten, Wilhelm Erikson 
and Robert Shea. 

The sudden death of Mrs. Guillow, our friend and teacher, on April 
1st cast a shadow of gloom over the school for many a day, and her loss 
was keenly felt. 

The warm, balmy days of Spring rolled around before we knew it. 
Baseball, track, and tennis teams were chosen, and the juniors made up a 
large part of each team. Junior boys receiving letters in baseball were: 
Bert Barry, Robert Curley, William Sparkes, and Daniel Burbine. The 
boys receiving track letters were: Edward Lally, David Dellinger, Robert 
Purdy and Paul Lazzaro. 

The Glee Club concert was held on February 20; the Masque Club 
plays April 24 and 25, and the Orchestra gave its concert May 8. While 
these events were not junior class events, many of our classmates took 
part in them. The R. O. T. C. prize drill was held June 6. Results of 
the prize drill meant promotion of many juniors to battalion officers. 

Our days from then on were numbered and vacation couldn't come 
soon enough. On June 27 the school doors closed for the summer and 
"Happy Days Were Here Again." 


Our senior year is almost over. It has been probably the most im- 
portant and busiest year of our young lives. It is hard to realize that we 
will not be coming back to Wakefield High School next year. Old friends 
will be parted, some going into the business world, and some going to 
college. In either case, new friends will be made and new associations 
formed; but I doubt if anyone will, or can forget, the good old days when 
we were just a lot of high school boys and girls. 

Our class officers this year were as follows: 

President, William Bliss; Vice-President, George Wengen; Secretary, 
Margaret Fitz, and Treasurer, Katrine Tuttle. 

Our activities were limited on account of the two-session plan which 
was necessitated by lack of room. The three upper classes attended school 
in the morning from 8 to MM) o'clock, and the freshmen and eighth grad- 
ers came in the afternoon from 1 to 5 o'clock. For this reason, we were 
forced to give up the public speaking classes, and the Inter Nos Club as 
an active organization. 

Our football season was one of the most successful in many years. 
The class of '33 will have to work hard to come anywhere near the example 
set for them by this year's team. The senior boys who received letters 
were: Daniel Burbine, Leon Dulong, Captain; James O'keefe, Zenas 
Bliss, Paul Lazzaro, Edward Dinan, Frank Mugford, William Sparkes, 
Robert Curley and Robert Purdy. 

Basketball letter men this year were Daniel Burbine, Marcus 
Beebe, David Dellinger, Paul Lazzaro. /enas Bliss, and John Buckle, 
manager. The girls were represented in basketball by: Alice Clark, 

Page Iiighty-six 

Eleanor Glover, Margaret Fitz, Ruth L. Griffin, Charlotte Holt, 
Madeline Howe, Beatrice Packard, Dorothy Peterson, Gertrude Van- 
denberg, Ruth Whitten, Ruth Assenza, Katrine Tuttle, Mary LeBlanc, 
Eleanor Daland, Captain. The girls also started bowling at the "Y" 
late in the year. This was in the nature of an experiment, and no 
letters or numerals were given. 

The Senior Play. "Summer is A'Comin In," was given on Novem- 
ber 24 and 25 with a different cast each night. Those taking part in 
the play were: David Dellinger, John Buckle, George Wengen, George 
Robinson, Gardner Peterson, Beatrice Packard, Mary Griffiths, 
Margaret Rogers, Eleanor Glover, Barbara Sheldon, Jean Wheeler, Don- 
ald Huff, Leroy Rendall, James O'Keefe, Edward Lally, Roger Gerry, 
Elizabeth Callbeck, Katherine Winkler, Margaret Fitz, Jeannette Gard- 
ner, Edwina Neal, Irene Beard. 

The Inter Nos girls and Hi-Y boys gave a play called "Tweedles" on 
April 1. This is the first time the two clubs have combined, and if the 
success of their first effort is any sign, they will probably continue this 
practice in the future. Both plays were under the able direction of Miss 
A. True Hardy, of the faculty. 

Our main social function, the Senior Party, was held on February 5, 
1932. The success of the party was due to President Bliss and his com- 
mittee — Maybelle Anderson, Ruth Boudreau, Alice Clark, Joyce Clemons, 
Thelma Hanright, Priscilla Lamprey, Grace Russell, Margaret Whitehead, 
Ruth Whitten, Virginia Woodbury, James Cotter, Maxwell Eaton, Carl 
Johnson, Robert King, Wesley Mason, James O'Keeffe, Thomas Parsons, 
Leo Ryan, William Sparkes, and Kenneth Worthen. 

The baseball team had a good season, with William Sparkes, Daniel 
Burbine, Captain Robert Curley, Manager Zenas Bliss, and Edward 
Dinan adding to their glory as all-round athletes. 

The High School Orchestra had a very successful season. The W. H. S. 
Boys' Band under the direction of Mr. Fanck, wound up its season with a 
concert and dance held at the Lynnfield Center Town Hall on April 8. 

As usual, the officers of the battalion, William Bliss, Morris Miller, 
Willard Atwell, Lloyd Shea, Gardner Peterson, and Sam Crosby, kept the 
boys happy, contented, and obedient, by their soft and gentle words. It 
is always an inspiring sight to see a battalion of boys marching over the 
athletic field. 

This year there was quite a controversy as to whether we should have 
a year book. We finally decided on a year book instead of the regular 
graduation pictures. The year book staff is as follows: 

Editor-in-Chief — Jean Wheeler. 

Business Manager — James O'Keefe. 

Assistant Business Manager — Wilhelm Erikson. 

Literary Editors — Alson Smith, Chairman; Marcus Beebe, Eleanor 
Glover, Mary Granese, Miriam Brandt, Madeline Howe, Beatrice 

Committee: Donald Huff, Marjorie Messer, Kenneth Worthen, 
Emanuel D'Ambrosio, John Confalone, Lloyd Shea, Alfred Ghibellini, 
Eleanor Daland, Ruth Dodge. 

In a few days we shall be graduated from the Wakefield High School, 
and as we stand on the threshold of life, let us keep before us our class
